    About Shopping on Amazon.com


    To avoid lost donations, we want to inform our members that the browser app does not work automatically at Amazon.

    When shopping at Amazon you must either click the browser app icon in the navigation bar, and then click the amazon logo, or login at at our site and click on Amazon to make sure that your order is registered and that your donation reaches your church.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.



    • 1% Cashback on your online purchase!

    Important Information


    1, Login to our web site before you start shopping at any of the online stores. If you have an old session started it is likely that your purchase will not create the donation.

    2, Make sure that you start with an empty cart. If the cart includes items that were placed in the cart in an earlier session, it is likely that your purchase will not create the donation.

    3, When you are finished shopping, complete your purchase in a timely fashion. Exiting and reentering Amazon.com to change the order makes it likely that your purchase will not create the donation properly.

    Amazon purchases are now directly donated from Amazon to your church's account at our site. The donation will appear under the church's Info Page as "Amazon", at or around the date your order was shipped or received by you. We are unable to send email notifications to our members as all donations now are anonymous.
